Organized by region, with one chapter devoted solely to Paris, Made in France takes the reader on a complete tour of the dazzling artisanal legacy of France, uncovering one-of-a-kind hidden workshops and off-the-beaten-path destinations, like the exquisite lingerie boutique, Cadolle, in Paris (the owner of which descends from Herminie Cadolle, the woman who invented the brassiere), or Lyon, France’s best-kept secret.Made in France includes advice on how, what, and where to buy, featuring a special primer on French shopping, hints on recognizing quality and authenticity, and a calendar of craft festivals throughout the year.

From the Author:

I was twelve the first time I laid eyes on the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. It sparked a fire somewhere deep inside my soul and ever since, I have returned to France as often as possible to live and work. I spent a memorable year at the University of Lyon, and the better part of my graduate school days in Paris archives or traveling to remote sites across the French countryside, from Normandy to the Pyrenees. Years later, I'm still captivated by French art and culture.

During the course of research for this book I stood transfixed before artisans who showed me firsthand what's unique about French craftsmanship: beauty, quality, and skill have propelled products like Baccarat crystal, Limoges porcelain, and foie gras to world-class status. 

From the Back Cover:

French craftsmanship is unparalleled in the world. Baccarat crystal. Limoges porcelain. The historic patterns of toile de Jouy. Scented gloves and custom-made umbrellas in Paris. The prized digestifs, Armagnac and Cognac.
